ICAP Patent Brokerage and AutoHarvest Form Marketing Partnership for Advanced Manufacturing Technology Commercialization
AutoHarvest Foundation and ICAP Patent Brokerage plan a news release for May 19 regarding their partnership to offer patent/IP monetization services to the manufacturing/automotive marketplace. This is the first service to be provided as an "AutoHarvest IP Monetization Program" - others are in the works in direct response to our Innovation Advisory Council ("IAC") member's feedback.
AutoHarvest selected ICAP Patent Brokerage because they are the industry leader and have a global reach-- and AutoHarvest members want to monetize at the fastest and fullest valuations. ICAP believes AutoHarvest can be a very effective "bridge" to automotive/mobility and manufacturing innovators and AutoHarvest plans to be the "boots on the ground" to help its members minimize their time and effort to identify, vet, value and transact, resulting in improved cash flow. In addition, ICAP and AutoHarvest plan to distribute part of any sales commissions with a new charitable giving program that will fund AutoHarvest interns at Universities in the Midwest, helping to further build the innovation ecosystem. The overall commissions charged will not be higher than the commercial rates employed by ICAP, thus AutoHarvest members will pay no more- but will have access to better service- and the students and universities will benefit in the process.
